A six-year-old kid in Australia named Raith Barlow DISAPPEARED Sunday
morning, and his parents had no idea where he was.
They called the cops, and immediately started looking for him. Obviously it
could have been really serious. But luckily he was fine.
It turned out he used a broom handle to open a chain-lock on their front door
while his mom was in the shower. Then he rode his bike about two miles to a
store . . . because he wanted to buy her a MOTHER’S DAY gift.
He dragged a flat-screen TV up to one of the registers, and tried to buy it
with all the money he had . . . which turned out to be 40 cents.
A manager realized he was alone and started walking him home. But on the
way, he saw some police HELICOPTERS and realized they might be looking for
him. So he stopped at a convenience store to call it in.
Raith’s mom says he had no idea how dangerous it was. Apparently he crossed
a pretty major highway to get to the store.
He told the local news that he loves his mom though, and just REALLY wanted
to get her that TV.
